One of the DLC's you have to complete the game for it to activate. And ones done by a radio message so just follow that message.

In the launcher make sure there all activated too. And dont know about the others as we got sick of paying for some thing that was not even a fraction of what the game was.

EDIT:

If i remember right it was Broken Sword that needed you basically at the end of the game to activate.

And Anchorage you just wait for a radio signal.
